Your encounter with a bug meets one of two reactions:
a. Quick my little friend, let me help you escape.
b. Eek! Kill it! No you kill it!
Come across a Shutterbug and expect something much more pleasant. Why? This is Sydney’s non-professional photography festival, held next Tuesday 3 June at The Chauvel Cinema Paddington.
Aspiring Australian photographers take part in the competition by submitting 20-40 photographs with the same theme. The brief that they work to is excellence across a body of work rather than a single image.
Expect to catch a glimpse of many of the entrants’ work, before slideshows of the top fifteen emerging artists play out on the big screen. Dean Tirkot, Ben Campbell, Kate O’brien and award-winning photo-journalist Tamara Dean serve on the judging panel and will announce the winner. Later on you can make the trip down Oxford Street to The Fringe Bar for the after-event party with the photography fraternity.
Last year’s finalists give a taste of what to expect, and good reason why this type of bug should be set free.
